This summer we held a Making a Living in Theatre workshop as part of our emerging artist workshop series. This was a fantastic opportunity for professionals, new theatre artists, and everything in between to discuss how to make a living in the theatre industry. Panelists and theatre professionals Katie German, Karen Schellenberg, Donna Fletcher, and Simon Miron were invited to guide the discussions.
Some topics discussed included the process of putting on your own production, receiving grants for your production, and finding local artists to collaborate with, among many other great topics! Panelists were able to offer insights and share stories.
Some of the workshop participants expressed interest in having a resource list for emerging artists. We have the compiled a list here to get the process started. Feel free to let us know anyone we missed and we’ll continue to grow this list!
